I love this book. Addie is awesome with with a sarcastic sense of humor. She shows her men who is charge. I can't wait for the next book Between HeVan and Hell. Nikki Mann
I really loved the society and history Lucy Kelly has created in this story. She has gone to great lengths to give the reader a new and different world that is just similar enough for us Earthlings to relate to. When the Hevanthians injured queen crash lands on Earth, her only thought is to keep her people alive and well, and part of that involves procreating with the natives. Generations later, Addie stumbles upon a find that will completely blow her mind - and she is suitable shocked. It's a pet peeve of mine when characters accept things a little to easily, but Addie handles this sudden change in her life realistically and bravely. Although I'm sure the fact that her discovery includes a boatload of hot guys that all seem to adore her helps a little. There are some side characters (which I'm assuming come into the story more later) that accepted a little too easily for me, but Kelly did a good job of trying to explain why and most of the time I believed her. The romance was a little sudden - but I tend to see that a lot in fated mates type of stories. And at times things tended to jump around a little too much with not a lot of transition from one issue to another. This was a great start to a series with a solid base for many more happy couples (triples? quads? I'm not sure what to call them) in future books. The men needed to have a little more backbone at times. They caved a little too easily to Addie's demands at times and a nice conflict of differing opinions is a great way to show some personality and how the characters think. I hope to learn more about HeVan and what's happened since the queen left. It sounds like a fascinating place.
HeVan Sent was a pretty good sci-fi romance. I enjoyed the author’s writing style and really liked the concept and the way in which the story unfolded. While the idea of a matriarchal society in which the males outnumber the females is one I have encountered before – and tend to love because it lends itself to polyamory – Ms. Kelly does a nice job of taking ownership of the concept and creating HeVan. The plot to overthrow the house of HeVanth and the steps taken to do so that were revealed in the Prologue was an excellent way to set the stage for the book and the series. The biggest detractor for me that prevented me from loving the book was Addie. For the most part, Addie is very interesting and likeable character. She is very intelligent, strong-willed, independent, and takes life in stride, adapting to the situation as needed. Despite all of this, there are times when she is downright juvenile, especially in her inner monologue. My problem wasn’t the juvenile antics themselves, but rather the jarring nature of a shift from thoughts and behaviors consistent with the PhD student she is to the thoughts and antics of someone with the maturity level of a 12 year-old girl who just discovered her boobs were growing. These personality shifts (for lack of a better term), would yank me out of the flow of the story and prevented me from fully immersing myself into the book. That said, I enjoyed HeVan Sent and the way in which Addie’s relationship with Arjun, Kylan, and Rune developed. Their joining scene was none like I’ve ever encountered before and I loved it. I was both disappointed and glad that the book ended with Addie and the guys still on Earth. I had hoped to see her encounter with the current ruler of HeVan, but am glad that the series will be playing out over several books. HeVan Sent has the series off to a good start and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the Nephilim series. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I have found another favorite author! Awesome! Addie is strong and with a sense of humor. It takes a while to get used to major changes that happen to her when she meets the aliens but she rises to the occasion and does not let her men get away with anything. Her men are hot, sexy and love to take care of Addie, strong men that got a strong woman in Addie. I really enjoyed this book, the interesting viewpoint that it takes.
